Windermere cycle team complete their 1000 mile journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats

03 July 2013

On Wednesday 26 June, 8 cyclists from Windermere School set off from Land’s End to make the 1000 mile journey to John O’Groats to raise money and awareness of breast cancer. The team aimed to reach the finish line in less than 80 hours and hope to raise £5,000 for the charity, CoppaFeel.

The team which was made up of students and parents battled with the weather, encountering wind and heavy rain along the way. They cycled in pairs in a non-stop relay style, travelling throughout the day and night. Their journey ended on Monday 1 July at 5.50am when they finally reached the finish line in John O’Groats, in a fantastic time of 94 hours.

So far, they have raised a huge £3,604 but would like to reach their target of £5,000. If you would like give a donation to help them reach this, please
